In what disciplines did Alfred Thompson and Brendan McGoldrick both win gold medals for Britain in the 1948 Olympic Games in London?

Ah, seen this somewhere before (one of the names rings a bell), it was something to do with art, either painting or architecture or literature.

Very good!

Until today I never knew that between 1920 and 1948 the Olympic Games included painting, sculpture, architecture etc....

In 1924 Jack Butler Yeats (brother of WB) won a silver for Ireland in painting.
